I just heard the band's new album and it's highly recommended. Good to see they'll return in a few months to play here... 

Brit Award-winning UK alternative rock band Catfish and the Bottlemen have announced their North American fall headline tour. Tickets are on sale Friday, June 17 HERE

The national run includes headline shows in Los Angeles, New York City as well as Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas and Austin City Limits. The band will also join Mumford & Sons for a handful of amphitheater shows.

They will then return to the UK for another round of sold-out dates in larger venues due to overwhelming demand, including their biggest show to date at London's 11,000-capacity SSE Arena Wembley. The full North America fall schedule is included below. Catfish and the Bottlemen drew huge crowds to their main stage performance at Governors Ball and will also perform on the main stage at Firefly Music Festival June 18. The band are currently touring the U.S. in support of their UK chart-topping new album, The Ride.

Stateside, they went Top 30 on the Billboard Top 200, and #2 on the Alternative Albums chart. The albums' debut single "Soundcheck" is top 15 at radio has continued to climb the charts since its release.
